states with his older brother, tamerlan a decade ago. the two lived together in cambridge, the suspect who was killed in a shutout this morning, tamerlan is a tsarnaev was 26. in 2007 he became a legal resident in america, he was a student at bunker hill community college and competitive boxer. this violent and drautic series of events was not set off by police, but by the suspects themselves, who were apparently trying to escape law enforcement. here's how it played out. around 10:00 p.m. last night, the suspects robbed a store. they then proceeded to fatally shoot an m.i.t. security officer and hijack a mercedes suv. the owner of that vehicle was held hostage for half an hour while the two brothers pulled $800 out of an atm. they released the owner of the mercedes unharmed. police chased the suspects into watertown, where this shootout took place. the suspects exchanged fire with police and threw explosives towards them. at one point, tamerlan sarn ev got out of the car wearing an ied strapped to his chest and was shot by police. his body was run over by dzhokah tsarnaev as he fled t

that must have been for him. then tamerlan the older brother, 26 years old in this family that we are learning a lot about this morning, the 26-year-old who is now dead was -- had bullet wound in the shootout with the police after he and his brother threw explosives out of their moving car. unfortunately they could not save him at the hospital in order to get nor or ou get more out of him. he he had shrapnel in his body. which leads everybody to believe he was going to set off another bomb in this nightmare that has gripped this whole area of boston and cambridge and watertown, wonderful towns in great state of massachusetts that have been rocked in a way they have never experienced before. this it is a very difficult day and he is still at large, so we will continue with our breaking news coverage of this story. joined now by jon scott and jenna lee as well. jon: what an incredible 18 hours it has been, martha. just since 5:00pm eastern time yesterday when the police released the pictures, the fbi released these pictures, to you will lee not these pictures, b but -- released thes
two. these are the pictures that came out overnight. tamerlan tsarnaev. number two on the loose, a fugitive right now, believed to be armed and dangerous, described as a terrorist, he was caught on camera last night, he's been on the loose for several hours and all of boston, the entire city of boston surrounding suburbs in lockdown right now. >> that's right. abc news just spoke to those boys' father, he is in shock and implores his son to himself up. he told abc news, he said that he think his sons were set up and he said they were very nice kids, never touched explosives and never learned how to handle weapons. he said that his younger son is on the run and in hiding because he's also afraid, words from his father. never saw indication at all atwas capable of violence. we're reminded by brad garrett, our fbi specialing at, often these terrorist lead double lives. we begin with chief investigative brian ross, on the ground, all through the night in watertown, brian, a night of gunfire, bombs, police hunting down the terrorists right now. >> reporter: indeed, george. he was las
there what could now be called warning signs? >> 26-year-old tamerlan, the fbi questioned him several years ago because they were keeping a very close eye on him but people who knew him say, look, he was a quiet guy. he seemed to be living the typical american life as well. he was religious, devout muslim. a boxer. he wanted to join the u.s. olympic boxing team. he drove a measurrcedes. he dropped out of college to marry an american woman. they were taken into police custody for a bit yesterday. by all accounts this was a religious man but a man who just seemed to fit in very well here. >> still so many questions. jeff, appreciate the insight this morning. >> a question lingering today could the bombing suspects ties to disputed territory of chechnya led them to violence? andrea mitchell is nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent. >> that's the connection what would have been going on there is what investigators want to question dzhokhar about when he is medically able to talk. officials believe he was following the lead of his older brother, tamerlan, who was radicalized in a six-month t
the boston marathon bombers as brothers, tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev. they are from a predominantly muslim region in russia. the 19-year-old brother believed to be extremely dangerous possibly armed with explosives on his person. unclear whether he was injured in the shoot outlast night in which his 26-year-old brother died. it's unclear whether he's injured and hiding somewhere and unable to move, whether he moved, they don't know right now. we're told that the brother was wearing explosives and a triggering device when he died which is why they're worried -- >> the older brother. >> the older brother. this is why they're worried the younger brother could be in a similar situation. this happened overnight and intensified. police say the suspects robbed a convenience store, shot and killed an m.i.t. police officer. i was on the air live when that happened last night, wolf. and as you know, it was no expectation at that time that there was any relation between the two things. but there ended up being. >> and when they heard of a convenience store robbery, stuff like that happens. >> right.
in the neighborhood are seeing. what's so remarkable is that the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, he has been dead since this morning, so all this is the result of one man potentially on the loose. so that one man, dzhokhar tsarnaev, has caused this kind of havoc, if not a lot more strong words. you mentioned kerry sanders. he's elsewhere in watertown. katie was describing you being on the ground. we've seen you in all sorts of positions. just really an exhausting time for you because you're keeping right up with the emotions of the police, that community. it's been like a wild roller coaster there. >> alex, i think i am probably a reflection of what a lot of people in their homes have felt like here, being trapped, waiting for some sort of information and wondering. glued to their televisions. just trying to find out what is going on. you're in your home. it's dark out. you hear a commotion. you look outside and there you see police officers in s.w.a.t. gear. it's been quite an ordeal for folks here. as you pointed out at times we have found ourselves up close and personal to some very tension mo
and his brother tamerlan tsarnaev, who was killed in a shootout with police, were so-called lone wolfs or had corrections -- connections to a terrorist organization. "the new york times" tamerlan tsarnaev's citizenship was under review because a background check show he was introduced by the fbi in 2011, for possible ties to clench chen -- chechen terrorists but was cleared. but the uncle said he was radicalized in recent years. >> no purpose in life, but a pursue path of god. >> reporter: this memorial near the finish line is a marathon and keeps growing. people are leaving flowers, balloons, and cards to remember the three victims killed here almost a week ago. this morning in london, tens of thousands of runners in the london marathon held a moment of silence and wore black ribbons in honor of the victims. the officials increase the number of police on site by 40%. susan macinnis, cbs news, boston. >>> police now say that before the shootout, the brothers had used the atm card on the man of a -- on the card of a man of the car they car jacked. and the police chased them and they thr
viewers up to speed on travel that tamerlan, the older brother, who is now deceased has done recently? >> last year from january through july he left, flew out of new york's kennedy airport and flew to russia and spent six months overseas. whereabouts unknown. they're desperately trying to track those movements to find out was he just going back to visit relatives or did he go to engage in some sort of terror training or rad dalization? that remains unanswered at this early stage of the investigation. that is one piece of the puzzle. the other question or these documents that we've obtained show that law enforcement really didn't get on to their trail till recently because based on the travel warnings, they weren't date stamped till 6:00 a.m. this morning on both the brothers. so it's clear they really weren't on the radar screen anytime before in terms of law enforcement. so people always ask, where there any warning signs? were these people -- did they do anything that would raise that red flag? there appears to be nothing based on the documents. and the people we've spoke within so
, when i saw like it says, this might be tamerlan. and, again, might be. and i clicked on that and there is this click, and, by the way, i went in there also, you know, some time ago, and i thought to myself, what an ugly boy found in that clip. that's, you know, even i went in there because, you know, in youtube, there is always something pop up. you watching something like, you know, the secrets, listening to that, and there is something in it unrelated will come up and then it goes on and on and on and on. and then you're just, you know, being -- have interest just to see what shift is that. sometimes there is a lot of it. what is that? you click on it and i heard it this morning, this morning. and i thought, if i was there, why wouldn't just, you know, just out of curiosity tamerlan wouldn't go in there also. >> would you say your nephews were devout practicing muslims? >> he was not devout practicing. but just recently maybe two years ago he started praying five times a day, which is, i don't see anything bad in it, you know? it takes off your mind, five times, you
. the older brother, as you mentioned in the beginning, tamerlan, his picture on the icio gun fight overnight with police in massachusetts. what really has authorities troubled, they have locked down the 20 square block area or so in watertown that we have been discussing and we think they have pinched in on the man in the white baseball cap, but they can't be sure. what has them most concerned is that these two brothers have shown quite a bit of skill, and evidence of training. one senior law enforcement official told us a short time ago, these guys were almost textbook perfect in terms of operational planning and security. they stayed off the radar, but beyond that, they have shown a high level of sophisticatifi sod skill in terms of evading police, and when they were confronted with a police shoot-out, incredibly, one of them escaped that cordon. he made the point that there were more police officer there and the suspects were outgunned. he summed it up by saying when have you ever seen that? they don't known he might have other confederates or other plans. the search, while focused in wat
that tamerlan was killed. >> learn what? >> that your nephew had been found? >> maybe i don't know. maybe one hour ago in talking on the phone with everybody. >> it's hard for you. >> i'm sorry he did this. it's so crazy. it's not possible. i can't believe it. when i heard this on tv news, i was thinking how can it be like this? it's crazy. unbelievable. >> and where does your other brother live? >> let's go with me. you want to go there? >> okay. >> drive after me and you will see it. >> can you wait just a minute and i'll get my notepad so i can write down the address? >> sure. 5 brock court, 20886. right now i'm going there. >> okay. okay. >> we're very sorry. >> we have been listening to that out of maryland. >> a press conference with the man who is said to be the uncle. >> ruslan tsarni. uncle of the tsavraev brothers. the older one, tamerlan, killed in a shoot-out. and dzhokhar, still wanted. an sbns mintense manhunt. the city is in lockdown. cabs canceled, buses canceled, air space over the city of boston shut down, an intense manhunt for the 19-year-old, a suspect in the boston marat
loose. dzhokhar tsarnaev. we know the older brother tamerlan tsarnaev is dead. we know two people in custody, not necessary related, that live in the apartment that these two brothers live in. willie, you have been covering things overnight. give us the tick talk through that convenience store robbery to where we are right now. >> as pete williams is pointing out for us this morning this came out because of the actions of these two alleged terrorists. they decided to rob a 7-eleven at 10:20 in cambridge. they went and murdered a police officer sitting in his vehicle at m.i.t. that led to a carjacking. they took a black mercedes suv. they held at gunpoint the driver of that car for 30 minutes before releasing the driver unharmed. at that point, there's a chase and authorities come into the town of watertown, as mike barnicle described it for us this morning. a bedroom community of 32,000 people and there was a shootout in the streets of watertown. suspect number one. the one we have come to known in the black hat. was on the ground. authorities found him with an ied. improvised exp
and the subsequent shootout in which the older of the two were killed. his name is tamerlan tsarnaev. he is 26 -- was 26 years old. it's his brother. the man said to be wearing the white hat who got away and has been pursued by authorities. he drove the car jacked suv for a time and then got out. both of the two brothers, we're told, came to the united states roughly a decade ago. they came in when their families sought asylum. their father was a government employee. they have been living in the boston area in cambridge for several years. the younger brother has a massachusetts driver's license. he's a resident of cambridge. the older brother is a legal, permanent resident. the older brother was born in russia. the younger brother, the one they are still trying to find now, dzhokhar tsarnaev was born in kyrgyzstan. his family lives in russia and we're told his father was a public official there at one time. the reason we're told for this extraordinary security in the area of watertown is, of course, because they still don't know where the other of the two brothers, the second bomber is located
the tib questioned tamerlan tsarnaev in 2011, officials had quote no authority to watch him because they found no terrorism activity at the time. this scenario that an american could and would do this while flying under the radar raises serious questions regarding national security. the "washington post" writes the boston attacks might serve as a new model for terrorism in the 21st century. seeing how two kids with backpack bombs seem to have succeeded in putting a major u.s. city on lockdown, it may now dawn on al qaeda leaders that a series of small-scale attacks like this conversation the same impact as one spectacular mass casualty attack. through a combination of skill and luck, we've done well at preventing the next 9/11. preventing the next boston massacre might not be as easy. joining me today, former dnc communications director and msnbc host, karen finney, "new york times" op-ed columnist frank bruney, retired army sergeant wes moore and "mother jones" msnbc political analyst, david corn and msnbc justice correspondent, pete williams. let's talk about the latest on this ca
last night in the interaction with police, tamerlan tsarnaev who was 26 years old. it all started last night in cambridge. there was a shootout with an officer at m.i.t. on the m.i.t. campus. that officer having been killed last night, found dead in his police cruiser. the suspects then reportedly carjacked an suv, and a chase ensued. at one point they did release the driver unharmed. they went into watertown which is just outside of cambridge, about 10, 15 minutes outside of cambridge and that's where there was a shootout with police. by 1:30 a.m., the first suspect tamerlan tsarnaev was dead and the second suspect was on the loose and being chased. this morning at about 5:00 a.m. police shut down the mbta. they have also now seen the shutdown of amtrak between boston and providence, a major shutdown. ed davis, commissioner of police, says this is a major man hunt. >> overall at this hour we've seen a lot of activity. they have surrounded the home in cambridge of the suspects where both lived. the a.p. reportedly got in touch with their father overseas in russia. their father expressi
-olds, tamerlan. one was born in curd stan and the other in russia. they have been living here in this country for about a decade. in watertown, nbc news justice correspondent and atf agent james cavanaugh and analyst roger cressy. live in watertown, we were listening together as kerry sanders was moved further and further back. what are you seeing? >> he is a few blocks away from here, but we are not hearing anything that he is hearing. it's quiet in this part of watertown. the helicopter that had been circling for the past few hours is no longer here. we have seen tactical units leave and others come back in. we haven't seen anything like kerry has been seeing a few blocks away from where we are standing. we don't want to give away too much because the police asked that we don't give out tactical information, but we are going on hour ten of a lockdown. people are not outside. maybe all of four or five residents come around to the area. that's very unusual whenever there is a media staging area people ask what is going on. we have seen none of that. people are heeding the warnings to stay ins
chapter in this tragedy. >> now, the other suspect that's dzhokhar's older brother, 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev was killed friday during a confrontation with police. authorities in boston suspended all mass transit friday and warned roughly 1 million people to stay indoors as the hunt for the remaining suspect played out. the brothers are the suspects in monday's marathon -- boston rather marathon bombings that killed three people and injured more than 180 others. the men are also suspected of killing an m.i.t. police officer while sitting in his vehicle friday night. let's go to watertown. nbc's luke russert is outside the hospital where the suspect is right now. good morning to you. take us through exactly how this 19-year-old suspect was caught? what are the details you've learned about how all this went down? >> well, it's an absolutely fascinating story, alex. as you know, yesterday the entire city of boston, a town of 625,000 people, as well as the surrounding metropolitan area of about 2 million, was put on lockdown. people were told not to go outside of their homes. around abou
of tamerlan tsarnaev be caught alive? >> well, is important. there is still some months that we don't know about this. is there a firm international connection? with a self radicalized? what motivated them? are there more potential terrorist attacks in the future? other part of the sleeper so? is the picture gets more clear new information makes a blurry, and there is just so much that we need to know. getting a hold of him and the freaking get informational tell us a lot. dagen: of course we mentioned the city has been on virtual lock down the public transition down. all of your major ones. so closed for today. amtrak service was closed down. people told by the governor of the state to stay indoors. boston and the surrounding areas. how critical is that? how critical is it that for these authorities to be a will to do their job? >> well, first of all, is public safety, of course. there are armed law enforcement officers, federal, state, local, out there trying to get this guy. another suspect is armed. may even have a suicide vest on. they have additional explosives. unfortunately, civili
night. on the left side of your screen is his 26-year-old brother tamerlan tsarnaev. we've learned he was a boxer. that he too had been in the area for a while. he was killed in a shootout with police and then on the right side previously described as just the man in the backwards white that is dzhokhar tsamaev. he is on the run right now. he is what every law enforcement official in that area is focused on, finding him, getting him into custody and off the street. this morning we have been hearing from family members. the father in russia calls his youngest son an angel, said he'd been a medical student. the uncle lives in maryland and reporters did catch up with him earlier this morning and here's what he had to say. >> it's crazy. it's not possible. i can't believe it. when i heard this on tv news i was thinking how can do like this stuff. it's crazy. it's unbelievable. >> now we're showing you video from last night because this is when this all started picking up steam. the picture that we showed you earlier of the two brothers, those were released at 5:15 last night by authoritie
that one of his sons, 26-year-old tamerlan had been killed in a shootout and other dzhokhar was being pursued "my son is a true angel." dzhokhar is a second year medical opportunity in the u.s. wexpted him to come and accomplished young man. and is a second year medical student, according to his father. >> we heard from his classmate as well. >> we'll take that to martha raddatz, our chief global affairs correspondent right now, martha, we're learning more and more about the suspects as the morning goes on now. we do know they are of chechen origin, one of the brothers had been here, the one still on the loose for about 12 years, his older brother for about five years, significant, perhaps, that his father still lives in russia in one of the russian republics could reinforce the idea that perhaps the young men did go back at various times. >> reporter: yeah, that's a surprise that the father still lives in russia because when they left chechnya apparently they moved to kazakhstan and dagestan after that and the youngest was born in kazakhstan. i don't know whether the mother is here.
associations to both of them, that have nothing to do with terrorism. >> lots of questions that tamerlan, the older brother, had been questioned before by the fbi, in 2011, at the request of the russian government. >> well, that's right. but, think about this, george, there are hundreds of thousands of young adults in this country that visit extremist islamic websites, he was one of them, so the question is, what line do you draw that we continue the investigation? or do we go and interview, make a decision on other intelligence that were not going to pursue an active case against him? >> you're already seeing some congressmen, peter king, criticizing, saying this was a missed opportunity. >> that's great to say. but when you have literally hundreds of thousands of people you want to keep track of, you want to prioritize. they're going to miss one every once in a while. when you approach them, when you interview them or do their background, they may not have radicalized to the level of what we saw on monday. >> going to websites wouldn't be enough? >> absolutely not. >> the older brother
brother tamerlan was killed, that they had links to chechnya. they were born in chechnya. you miiht rorl that is the break away russian republic that couldn't break away. russia would not allow it. under three different prime ministers would never entertain it. the reason why that is crucial, chechen rebels, if there is a link to the outfit we know there is the chechen separatist it is, and there is no way to prove that, if there is they take no mercy. nine times out of 10 when there was a violent act two years ago in movie theater, two years prior to that in a school and i think about a year before that in a hospital, each time the rebels are surrounded they kill themselves, often times, i believe in the case of the school attack claimed better than 40 kids lives. they blow themselves up. in that case with a number of kids. that's why given that history and give the precedent that rebels would rather kill themselves than ever, ever, surrender to police, authorities are on the scene are handling with the greatest of care. so you can understand why we sort of just wait and watch. they des
to -- tamerlan tsarnaev, according to u.s. fox news returned from a united states from a trip to russia. the source did not know or could not tell fox news how long he was outside the united states. feds are continuing to chrome all travel and communications connected to the brothers. the elder brother who is deceased last night was out of the u.s. for a prolonged period from early 2012. now the personal angle on all of this right outside of washington, d.c. and suburban maryland where the boy's uncle lives. the news crews caught up to him and he offer ad message to his nephew. >> put a shame on the shame on our families. you put a shame on the entire chechen ethnicity. because everyone now names with the word chechen. >> talking about the second suspect the younger nephews of the two brothers. search going on in boston as you mentioned. firms were briefed a short while ago saying the situation is already fluid. >> at this point we'll continue withing following up in that neighborhood. we have several other new leads that developed in the last few minutes and we're working on that. and
. the two brothers, the one who was killed last night tamerlan tsarnaev. the man police are looking for at this hour is dzhokhar tsarnaev, identified by the fbi as wearing the white hat, as you can see in the photograph there. those were the photographs from the scene on monday at the boston marathon that were made public by the fbi last night. dzhokhar the man at large has a massachusetts driver's license and was born in kyrgyzstan. they came to the u.s. with their family in 2002, 2003. may have been here well over a decade in the united states. >> and has left a trail of devastation in their wake. pete williams also saying that this chase last night, which culminated and still continues now, but culminated in a huge shootout with the sounds of gunfire and explosives ringing through the streets of watertown in the dark of night. these guys were the ones who started this by potentially a realizing their faces were out there and if they wanted to make another mark or make a break for it, they had to do it right away. it involved them robbing a 7-eleven, carjacking someone, letting th
, tamerlan, in the black hat, was killed overnight in a police shoot-out. >> both men are believed to be from the chechnyan region of russia. they reportedly have been in the united states for one year. bob orr is tracking the story from washington. bob, good morning. what can you tell us? >> reporter: good morning, gayle and charlie. well, the first order of business is to try to find the remaining brother i
, but the older brother, dead, tamerlan tsarnaev, has been living in america since 2007. tell me your thoughts on what happened here. he's living in america since '07 and at some point, turns and decides he wants to kill americans. what would be your take in terms of the psychology and what these two are thinking or were thinking? >> well, we don't know, but we're about to find out. some say there might be a hybrid here, like major nidal hasan was radicalized via the internet, yet there was another soldier at ft. hood, an enlisted man, who built two explosive devices just like the ones we see used in boston because he had access to the same internet magazines that these guys did, but at ft. hood, he used it to kill soldiers for his own personal reasons, not necessarily anything that had to do with religion or politics. in this particular case, because perhaps the older brother was radicalized, had influence on the younger brother, who's the fugitive right now, we may find this is something like a timothy mcveigh. in essence, the target was not so specific, but the target was located because he
cnn the dead suspect identified as tamerlan sarnias, age 26. the one being sought is sfwlnch zokar sarnias. i'm probably botching the pronunciation of those names. one of the things we know, these procedure brothers are from chechnya. doesn't mean they were radicalized from chechnya at all. it could be they came here, self-radicalized. all that is is the ethnicity. >> phil, what can you tell us about the situation in chechnya, russian/chesh nkn russian/chechen relations. >> the situation in chechnya is reasonably stable. chechnya and the region around it has been the source of an islamist insurgency for something close to 20 years now. two brutal wars in chechnya to put down an islamist separatist movement which it has effectively done. ever since putting an end to separatist ambitions from people who wanted to establish their own chechen state, break away from russia, russia crushed that movement, but there is an ongoing insurgency with chechen fires, dwithin the region, islamist insurgents and terrorists, who have been regularly staging attacks, brutal, effective attacks in mosco
whether the elder son tamerlan, actually did meet someone suspicious. we know that he was with his father. his father has spoken at length about both sons actually. he did confirm the man did come out and visit and stayed with them. both parents have actually said that they believe both sons, the 26-year-old tamerlan, now deceased, and the 19-year-old dzhokhar, the one who's in custody in the hospital, they say that they were framed. and the mother has actually accused the fbi of regularly harassing the family. she says because they are chechens, ethnic chechens. now, the parents have been living more recently in dagestan which is in the north caucuses region. now, this is a very troubled area. it's a small russian republic, but it's neighboring chechnya. both of these areas have seen a lot of conflict, particularly an active separatist group in dagestan right now, there's a mission taking place in the area to clean up what the government says is a guerrilla group. now, the mother, of course, has described her sons as good people and that they were persecuted because they were chechens an
